Welcome to the new home of Sky Diary!

Chris Kridler’s storm chasing site is here, with photos, chase reports, kids’ pages and more

You’ve landed in the middle of a transformation. Sky Diary’s new home is here on my official site, ChrisKridler.com (the main menu is above in case you’re looking for the Chris Kridler home page, author services, books and more). I started chasing storms in 1997 and soon after that developed a website, first on America Online and then on the web. After building Sky Diary for more than twenty years in HTML, it became a bit creaky. I’m in the process of capturing the best of Sky Diary and transferring it to this site for a more reader-friendly experience. Old pages at SkyDiary.com will forward to the new ones as appropriate. Much of the content is here already, though the old galleries with storm-chasing reports will linger a little longer as I save some of the best material and put it in my blog. You can already find storm chasing posts in my blog from recent years. Stay tuned for more updates to this page.

Storm Chasing 2021

Cow is our loyal companion on the road.

Ready to hit the road? After a hiatus thanks to the pandemic, I’m making plans to head for the Plains for storm chasing this spring! Follow our adventures here and on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
